We’re entering the last couple of weeks of the semester and you know what that means… finals. It’s a stressful period, one I’d rather fast forward through and get to winter break. However, in my “just make it to break” mentality, fun and social activities have taken a backseat. I think there should be a […]

Most of us have heard of the “freshman 15.” If you haven’t, it’s basically the myth that every freshman eats enough food in their first semester of college to gain 15 pounds. Whether that’s actually true or not, we’ll find out. The reason why the freshman 15 might happen is because either A) the dining […]

As Thanksgiving rapidly approaches, most of us are looking forward to “traditional” gatherings: catching up with family, wearing cozy sweaters and eating some scrumptious comfort food.

  Just about everyone I know dreads lugging their laundry down to the basement of whatever building they live in to pay for something they don’t want to do anyway. I even know some people who live in Massachusetts that just drive home instead and have their parents do it for them, which seems pretty […]

Fresh Fuel at Granby Commons could not be more appropriately named. Otherwise known as the Hillel dining hall, this cafeteria is tragically underrated. Located at BU’s Hillel House (a communal space for the Jewish community), the dining hall is the ideal place to eat, talk or study. And yes, you can go there even if […]
